TACKLE ALL YOUR TEAM'S TASKS & PROJECTS IN ONE PLACE
I think checklists are the greatest thing in the world. They help me stay on top of so many tasks. Trello makes it easy to stay on top of my lists at each stage of completion. I do this by keeping a To-Do, Doing, and Done list so I can track my progress at a glance. To create a checklist in Trello, first create a new board (which represents a new project) by tapping the plus sign on the app's main screen and filling out the info. Create a list by tapping Add List and then typing a title. Next, create a new card by tapping Add Card and filling it out, then tapping Checklist and filling out your checklist. You can move your checklist card to a different board by tapping the three-circle icon in the upper right corner and tapping Move Card. Customize Your Board
Trello's standard blue background can make things confusing when you're quickly moving in and out of boards. You can make your life a bit easier by setting a unique background color or image for each board. I can visually confirm that I'm in the right board by checking the background image, so I remember which is which. You change your background image by going to the board, then selecting the three dots at the top right. Tap the gear icon, then tap Background. From there, you can set a new color or photograph as your background. Collaborate on Projects
Cards are designed to be buckets that can hold lots of data. You can link to websites, attach files, or talk to team members about a task or idea included on the card. You can leave comments by tapping Comment under the Activity section. There, you can leave a link, jot down thoughts about the subject for your team to see, or attach a document or file. To attach a document, simply press the paperclip to the right of the comment box and choose what you want to attach. Most files will attach directly to the card, but some formats, like a Dropbox attachment, will instead link back to the source.
Trello gives you optional apps to connect to at will with a feature called Power-Up that's basically magic. Free users get access to Calendar and Voting Power-Ups (two of the most useful ones available), while paying users get access to Power-Ups for Dropbox, Evernote, and Google Drive, to name a few. To access this feature, go to a board, and tap the three dots at the top right. Tap Power-Ups and choose whichever one you wish to use. The calendar Power-Up will help keep track of due dates for you in an easy-to-view manner. This will help you stay on top of your ever-growing to-do list. Manage Your Notifications
Want to stay notified of any changes to the status of project you're working on? You can Subscribe to a board or card in Settings and you'll be notified of any changes or progress made to the specific item in question. With cards, you'll be notified of changes in due dates, archiving changes, and added comments. Subscribing to a board means you'll be notified of all of the above, but for all cards and for newly created cards. At any time, you'll get notified if you're mentioned in a checklist item or a comment, if one of your boards is closed, if someone adds you or makes you an admin of a board or team, or if you're added to a card.
